  • quirky and cute small town romance

    Once in a Blue Moon By Amanda Ashby 4/5 🦄 This book was unexpected and very sweet! The story follows Laney—a widow, a florist, a great friend, and unfortunately the ex of a famous novelist who wrote a book about their entire relationship...making her look like a psycho and a stalker. Even though not all of it is true, when novelist Adam shows up in her small (but magical) Oregon town for a signing, she tries to avoid him at all costs—including climbing up a tree! But when it turns that the town is just the right place for Adam to start writing again, he decides to stick around until he’s finished. Unfortunately for Laney, who has kept mum on their whole past book included, he ends up as her neighbor. I loved this premise and I adore small town settings. The cast of quirky characters was so fun and just what any small town needs. The romance was sweet and exciting. It was a bit like Austen’s Persuasion in that it was about falling back into love—but mind those sexy bits! Jane couldn’t have those! I really enjoyed the complexity of their relationship and the way they had to deal with their past. However I felt like Laney’s character needed to develop more. Or there needed to be an actual confrontation about her evasiveness and her hesitancy. Adam and Laney don’t really get that kind of arguing even though it seemed like it was building up to it. Either way it was a fun and cute and slightly quirky small town romance I could get behind. Check it out!

  • a heart-warming five-star read

    Once in a Blue Moon by Amanda Ashby a heart-warming five-star read. St Clair just sounds like such an idyllic place to run away to, it really feels like one of those places that you could run away to and start-over, much like Laney George managed to do, she may have moved with her husband but she became someone new when she moved in. The place just has the magic, and its that magic that meant that Adam Fitzpatrick came for a book signing and reading and found the inspiration for a new bestseller, as he had one amazing story wrote about an ex-girlfriend and the following novels have been lacking something and have been minor flops, he needs the inspiration, but is it St Clair that inspire him or a certain ex-girlfriend, one who moved on and away. This was an inspiring story, and a great one to bring you some joy to your life.

  • Small Town, Second Chance

    Wonderful small town, second chance romance! This is a story about mistakes, misunderstandings and the journey to forgiveness. Laney and Adam dated years ago but split when his career took him to another city. He then wrote a book where Laney viewed herself as the main character and felt betrayed. Years later they meet in her new home and even after all those years, there are still feelings between them. Mostly hurt feelings on Laney's part and Adam tries to right the wrongs from their past. Both main characters needed to learn who they really were and what they wanted in life before they could finally be together. I liked the growth that each of them went through during the story, loved a number of the small town residents, the dog, and Adam's brother and ex-wife/SIL. This was my first book by Amanda Ashby and will definitely read more. I received an advance reader copy for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A hauntingly, predictable tango into love.

    Ashby brings class to an often times heartbreaking tale of forgiveness. Once in a Blue Moon is a trek through conflicting emotions, long withstanding mistakes and perhaps a second chance to make everything right. Yet, foolish pride can be a bitter pill to swallow when it comes to matters of the heart. A hauntingly, predictable tango into love.

  • novella

    The premise of the book was sweet, and Adam and Laney had cute moments. But the thing with his brother and ex-wife and how that was handled bugged me a little.
